What Are Obama's Priorities?

I want to tell you about the Black Panther story from the beginning, because something is not right.

On Election Day in 2008, the New Black Panther Party had a national effort to send out its members to polling locations. They called the election an "emergency" situation. Two of those members were caught on tape at a polling location in Philadelphia, in full paramilitary uniform and reportedly brandishing a baton.

One of the Panthers, King Samir Shabazz, was reportedly harassing and intimidating voters and poll workers. This was supposed to be an open and shut case. Former President Bush starts the prosecution before the end of his term, but then President Obama comes in and decides suddenly, in May of 2009, to drop the case. A former Department of Justice official ends up resigning in protest over the case and testifies about it.

Bartel Bull, a civil rights lawyer in the 1960s and the former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the "most blatant form of voter intimidation" he had ever seen. That's saying something — and this isn't some right-wing Republican shill. Bull also said the Black Panthers intimidated voters and tried to "interfere with the work of other poll observers," telling one that, "you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

Then this video of one of the accused, King Samir Shabazz was uncovered:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SAMIR SHABAZZ: I hate white people — all of them. Every last iota of a cracker — I hate him. Because we're still in this condition.

We didn't come out here to play today. There's too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore (expletive) on our arms.

You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some crackers. You're going to have to kill some of their babies. Let us get our act together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The Obama Justice Department still maintains the case isn't supported by the facts. This racist I just showed you got less than a slap on the wrist. He is not allowed to go to any Philadelphia polling locations... until 2012. Gee, what's going on that year? Oh, and he can still go to polling locations in other towns.

New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz mocked the outcome:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MALIK SHABAZZ, NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY: King Samir can't go back to polling place until 2012 and I don't think he cares if he goes back to a polling place until 2012.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Despite all this, there is no interest in the case — a case that shouldn't have been dropped in the first place. Let's look now at the priorities of this president:

The president took 93 days to respond to McChrystal's Afghanistan report

It took the president 57 days to meet with BP's CEO

It took two weeks for the president to make a formal statement on the Christmas Day bomber

477 days since undercover ACORN tapes surfaced, no official investigation

It was 47 days before the White House commented on our Van Jones immigration

Clearly, no rush with any of those decisions. So, what does the president care about?

After the Professor Gates incident, Obama told the nation two days later — admittedly without the facts — that the police "acted stupidly"

Arizona has been begging for border reinforcements for 454 days; it took the Obama administration 78 days to file their lawsuit

The Obama administration took 37 days to order a stop to drilling in the Gulf; after the court overturned the moratorium, it took them eight hours to re-file

Then you have the police shooting case in Oakland. 23-year-old Oscar Grant was being arrested and allegedly resisting when the officer says he tried to shoot him with his Taser. He claims he accidentally pulled his real gun by mistake. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Protests ensued and it didn't take long before looting and rioting broke out. Over 80 were arrested as windows were smashed, cars were burned and so on. Now, I'm sure there were plenty of legitimately angry, regular citizens there. But there were also lots of signs and groups there. Remember, this is San Francisco — home of Van Jones' STORM and the Ella Baker Center and all sorts of communist groups. They spread the word leading up to the verdict.

Anarchist News wrote: "We are anarchists who live in the Bay. We are outraged by the murder of Oscar Grant, and we are pissed at continuing police violence and disregard of communities' health and safety. We're writing this letter to all the people who are going be in the streets the day of Mehserle's verdict."

The latest edition of Revolutionary Communist Party USA read: "The Whole Damn System is Guilty! We demand Justice for Oscar Grant"

Revolution Books writes: "There are plans for a convergence in downtown Oakland at 14th and Broadway at 6 p.m. on the day the verdict is announced. People need to be there and elsewhere to respond politically to the verdict. And the L.A. Coalition for Justice for Oscar Grant is calling on people to gather at the courthouse."

And The Ella Baker Center: "There has been a city-wide call for folks to come out on the evening of the verdict to 14th and Broadway in downtown Oakland for a rally, speak out and open-mic. Members of the Ella Baker Center team will be out in the streets that evening to stand with the community as we call for justice."

We're dealing with radicals here and these people mean what they say. These aren't empty words. When they say revolution, they mean revolution.

(We need your help. We need you to monitor these sites. Cass Sunstein wants to infiltrate Tea Party sites, how about doing the job Holder should be doing? Find me on Twitter or send tips to becktips@foxnews.com.)

And how long did it take the Department of Justice to respond to Mehserle verdict? Just two hours:

"The Justice Department has been closely monitoring the state's investigation and prosecution. The Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office, and the FBI have an open investigation into the fatal shooting and, at the conclusion of the state prosecution, will conduct an independent review of the facts and circumstances to determine whether the evidence warrants federal prosecution."

The president can say whatever he wants, but the actions of this administration — especially when it comes to radicals — speak volumes.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, Bill O'Reilly gave his latest take on the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, and explained why he thinks House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is like "Alice in Wonderland."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
